Insernhagan Work Systems (IWS)
Jefferson County Rehab uses the IWS to perform Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE). This approach is unique because this system emphasizes on what tasks you can perform at your current level of function. Once determining your current level of function your therapist can establish your maximal functional capacity and compare this to the demands of your job. Thus we stress on what a worker can do and NOT what they cannot do. Each evaluation is begun by openly communicating and describing each functional capacity tests so the worker understands why and what is being assessed. The functional capacity evaluation is performed to see if the worker matches their current job requirements.

Complete Back Pain Treatment
-We treat the entire patient when they are referred for cervical, thoracic and low back pain, this means we don’t just look at the area of pain but also adjacent regions for potential problems that are often related. For example many patients with chronic neck pain also have weakness in one or both shoulders. Another example is in patients with recurrent low back pain often they also have weakness in one or the other hips.

-Pain in or around the “dimple” region in your lower back, commonly called sacroiliac joint pain, is one of our specialities as is chronic hip pain.

-We not only alleviate the pain but teach you how to prevent pain in the future.-With over 30 research papers published in the area of musculoskeletal, we are experts at treating this kind of pain.

-Our exercise and educational programs alleviate pain and, most importantly, prevent recurrent pain.

-Pain is reduced and functions is restored with a well-planned rehabilitation program directed at eliminating specific muscle imbalances and joint dysfunction.

-Therapists discuss how to avoid daily activities that can create muscle imbalance and joint dysfunction to prevent re-occurrence. For example many patients with recurrent low back pain either sit on their leg or cross their leg often develop hip and or low back pain from habitually sitting in this position. We stress the identification of hip range of motion imbalances and muscle imbalances that can lead to chronic and recurrent low back pain.
